Despite the occasional discordance, there is energy and studiousness here that displays the artist's dedication to his craft.

|Evo Evolver - Neon City [qd-4248] - Michael John Madriaga|
Neon City is a 6-track drum-n-bass full-length album that never veers far from its core goal of providing a smooth series of jazz-influenced accompaniments to urban exploration. A little bit sparkling Tokyo, a smidge of vast California, and a whole lot of grimy Manila, the release becomes a unified whole, because it is cut from a single template of light, but driven, grooves. Evo Evolver's signature sinister mood is abandoned for a different flavor of DNB...

|[qd-4246] Demolee - A World in Slow Motion - Franco Madrid|
Demolee is smooth. In an effort to create some stuttering drum-n-bass, he instead coughed up 4 tracks of suaveness and sophistication. And now he claims he originally intended it that way. A World In Slow Motion is a jazzy travel through nocturnal cityscapes with arms wide open.

On his third EP release on QED Records, Evo Evolver (aka Araknidus aka Philippine dnb musician Myke Madriaga) dishes out melodic two-step and drum&bass replete with expansive atmospheres and cinematic elements.
